Two Too Cool Things

first, a mention that is long overdue. saw the documentary “The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters”.  I should mention that I have little to no interest in gaming. I don’t play video games. I don’t like to watch people play video games. I wasn’t sure I would enjoy a movie about people who live to play video games.

I loved this movie. That is how great it is. A viewer can have little knowledge about the gaming world and still get sucked in to the drama that unfolds. You will choose sides and maybe swap sides and swap sides again as you watch these two men battle it out for the title of world’s greatest Donkey King player.

Next cool thing: saw Chick Corea and Bela Fleck in concert in GSO Monday night. I should probably just stop there and let the coolness seep out and around the computer screen. Again, I had no idea what I was in for. I enjoy Chick Corea’s music. Didn’t really know a lot about Bela Fleck but I do like the banjo. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised! I mean, wow.

So, amidst the other stuff that has been going on, there have been these two moments of coolness.
